All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

When the jokes aren't sexual or xenophobic, the movie's sense of humor is merely strained.

Boston Phoenix

Quirky love story carried along nicely by a witty script and totally natural characters.

Audience Reviews for Ed's Next Move


Amusing and sometimes quite funny. It held my interest and that's a lot to say for me. I know nothing about the actors, director or anything else, but this one is pretty cool. Ed's Next Move is about Ed trying to make it through his love life, which quite frankly is everyman's love life, terrible. Great because this for once is an honest portrayal of an educated, decent guy that gets dumped by his girl in Wisconsin. The job takes him to New York city, where he quickly learns he is NOT in Wisconsin anymore. Sharing an apartment with a gal a minute landlord, he does get along fabulously. But he has to find someone to like and does so with chance meetings at a party, then at a diner, then on the street. He keeps meeting Lee, a gal who is worth it. Then he stumbles into her as a folk singer in a bar. Ed's famous line: "Let's just say first dates go better when nothing dies" Eds Next Move was a delight and surprise. I recommend this one to romance comedy fans or those curious.
